The Counter-Insider Threat (C-InT) Social & Behavioral Science (SBS) Summit 2023

In collaboration with the Department of Defense Counter-Insider Threat Program, the DoD Insider Threat Management Analysis Center, and the National Insider Threat Task Force, and in support of September’s National Insider Threat Awareness Month (NITAM), The Defense Personnel and Security Research Center’s Threat Lab held the 2023 C-InT SBS Summit on August 29th & 30th. We are pleased to offer recordings of select presentations.

This year’s NITAM theme is Bystander Engagement, focusing on bystanders’ important roles in our everyday work environments. Bystander Engagement is the concept whereby an individual is aware of concerning behaviors, knows how to act on those concerns, and takes appropriate action.

Register now to watch select recordings from the in-person Summit.

Why Was the C-InT SBS Summit Created?
